Barry's request looks reasonable. Any build information will have platform specificities to it.

On the other hand, this begs the question of why you want to access the Python makefile at all. Is there any information in there that isn't currently exposed? I think it would be nice if people could completely forget about the existence of that file, and instead have nice programmatic APIs to query properties they are interested in.
